PC version of ROCK OF AGES Gets Christmas Update, PSN Port Announced


Rock of Ages Christmas Update logoDetails have just been announced for the Steam-exclusive PC version of Rock of Ages‘ newest patch. The newest patch will permanently open all defensive units for every map and will temporarily unlock certain gameplay elements to create a festive feel. However, the biggest news of this patch is the release of a new skin for the Rock for FREE!

With a unique art style and fast-paced action, Rock of Ages places players on the other end of a tower-defense game. Rather than building defensive units and keeping the enemy at bay, you are the enemy, hell-bent on destroying the towers with your mighty boulder. Recently, Rock of Ages won Machinima Inside Gaming Awards’ “Most Original Game.”

There are no plans to release this patch or the snow man skin to the XBLA version of Rock of Ages. However, Atlus did announce that the Rock will be rolling onto PSN in December.

The PC version is available on Steam for 50% off or can be purchased as part of the Humble Indie Bundle.

Holiday Shopping Guide: 10 Awesome Wii Games from 2011


2011 has not been kind to the Nintendo Wii, and more so than usual, the system has been plagued by shovelware. However, here are the 10 best games from 2011!

Metacritic: 79

Average price: $17.83

Effectively utilizing the Wii’s motion controls, de Blob 2 proves that third-party publishers can make good games for the Wii.

THQ kept most of the formula of de Blob but expanded on it. In other words, it’s the typical video-game sequel: the same, but  better.

Set in a grey world, players control de Blob as he bounces onto color pallets and returns beauty to his world. Players will use all-new abilities to clear areas of enemies.

As players color the city, new areas are opened and new missions become available.

Just Dance 3 Wii box artJust Dance 3

Metacritic: 75

Average price: $36.98

The biggest dance game on the shelves right now is easily the Just Dance games. Ubisoft’s party game flies off the shelves.

Although JD3 is available for other systems, the franchise started on the Wii, and it keeps a strong showing.

The Wii remotes track a player’s movements as she tries to match the dancers on the screen. Players can dance alone, in pairs, or competitively with up to three other players.

The visual aesthetic features near silhouettes dancing on the screen to a huge set of songs, including B.o.B’s “Airplanes,” Katy Perry’s “California Girls,” Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous,” and more.
